Dell PowerEdge 2950: System event log (SEL) is full

Last Modified: 2018-05-10
On an old Dell 2950 I noticed "I1912 SEL Full" on display. OS is 2008 R2 Standard
Through OpenManage (Hardware > Logs), the message is:

Wed Mar 02 12:33:26 2016      System event log (SEL) is full.

2 question:

1) the only way to clear event log is through BMC menu (reboot required), according to this URL?

2) few days ago I registered a disk hardware failure. I configured alert with "DellSMTPNotify" application.
Is it possible to I didn't receive an email for that failure, due to Event Log full?

Thankyou very much
